Are these Sennheiser IE7 earphones fake?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I was just wondering if you think these Sennheiser IE7 earphones which I bought for £54.50 including postage are fake or real.

 

They didn't come with any cleaning tool or foam ear buds, just over-ear holders and the standard silicon buds and documentation, however they were sold as used and the seller did state this, so it doesn't really prove they are fake. I know I got them very cheap (£54.50), however the new ones on Amazon were selling for £84.50 (Including postage) and these were sold used. They came in all the usual packaging etc.

 

Below are some photos:

Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

well, only you can answer that question really. If you are a true audiophile, and appreciate good sound, then what is really essential is the sound. Not the make or model. To me, if it sound phenomenal, then it's worth the price. And there is nothing in question. real or "fake" is inconsequential. If a company produces a bad sounding product and it's "genuine", it garbage! if another unknown makes the same product, but it's designed to perform better--and sounds much, much better. then I obviously prefer the "fake" model!

You see it boils down to sound performance. A true audiophile has no need or concern for what it's made from or where of what-name. Who gives a damn??? At the end of the day, if it reads Fong Lu, Made in China, and the car drives better and looks better than a Ferrari--I really don't give a damn! smily_headphones1.gif That's just an analogy of course.

By the way please ignore the Grado stock photo. I am no fan of Grados.redface.gif
